Tuesday, March 7, 7:30pm: Pedrosaxo

Pedrosaxo has revolutionized the saxophone. He has synthesized his many interests – imitation, acting, video gaming, and composition – into a breathtaking and truly unique artistic statement. Quite simply, he has obliterated all previous technical and artistic boundaries, and has achieved it in ways that are fascinatingly beautiful, haunting, appealing, and awe-inspiring. He appeared as a finalist on Spain’s nationally-televised “Spain’s Got Talent!” and has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. Pedrosaxo is on the music faculty at Middle Tennessee State University and his self-titled debut album was co-produced with 3x Grammy-winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin (of Dave Matthews Band and Bela Fleck & the Flecktones) and released on Jeff’s Ear Up Records.
